think that we're getting down to the wire here. president obama doesn't want to cancel his hawaii vacation, and harry reid's threatening to keep congress in session, again, for the third year, fourth year in a row. that could have been one of the things they talked about. but at this point, i'm not quite sure if boehner can really get a deeper spending cut deal. i think the most he's going to be able to get is a promise. >> keith boykin, the other thing when i was down in washington yesterday, on the phone with all these guys, is that basically the republicans are going to cave in. basically they're going to cut their losses. basically it's a strategic retreat, that's what i call it, and they will give the president, they will give him his middle class tax cuts, or extended tax cuts and the top rates are going up. now, what the gop gets in return for that i do not know. but i see a cave-in, keith. >> i think you're right. they have no choice, larry. i mean, there's no leverage. the tax rates are going to expire on december 31st, so on january 1st, regardless of whether they do not

the fiscal cliff. meanwhile, president obama cut his hawaii vacation short to return to washington today. but has he been working on a deal? "outfront" tonight, reports from both ends of pennsylvania avenue. chief white house correspondent, jessica yellin, and senior congressional correspondent, dana bash. jessica, first, to you, the president's back in washington, wheels down. he left his christmas vacation early. but was this just a bit of showmanship, or has he been working on something specific? >> reporter: hey, john. well, today has been a bit of a quiet day here at the white house. publicly, the president has been scarce, no sign of him. behind closed doors, i'm told a few meetings internally, but mostly, relatively quiet. i expect we will see more from the president, perhaps we could even see him publicly tomorrow. perhaps he could even meet with or talk to some of the congressional leaders. the president's role in all of this, he can get each of the leaders to come closer on what the white house believes is already, pretty clearly, the framework for a final deal, and he can also

to hawaii for christmas the president laid out a new, stripped-down plan to avert the fiscal cliff. here's what it is, extend the bush tax cuts for people making less than $250,000. extend unemployment benefits for the 2 million people who will run out, next month. and, delay the sequester of $110 billion, in spending cuts, next year. for all of the talk of $4 trillion in debt reduction the plan would only save $800 billion, over ten years. senator conrad, is that the best that washington can do over the next nine days, and can you pass even that? >> look, chris. it may come to that but we can do better. and we should do better. this is an opportunity to do something that would be hugely important for the country. and, my own belief is, what we ought to do is take speaker boehner's last offer, the president's last offer, split the difference, and that would be a package of about $2.6 trillion. you couple that with the $1.1 trillion that is already done. and, that would be close to the $4 trillion needed to stabilize the debt and begin to bring it down, and, then, if you want to do add --
